Boatyard Finds Success with Advertising in SOUTHWINDS:

"Since inception, or almost immediately after placing advertising
with your publication, my boatyard business picked up twofold. By the fourth
month, business picked up another 50 percent.Presently, I have seven boats
in my boatyard as a direct result of your publication. Should anyone require
a reference of the results I have received by using your publication, please have them call."

Thank you,
